My Parents Are Ageing, What the Heck Do I Do?

An insiders’ guide to Australia’s aged care system with a specific focus on the aged care programs designed to support older people at home, My Parents Are Ageing, What The Heck Do I Do? shows people how the aged care system works, enabling them to get timely and appropriate outcomes to keep older loved ones at home.

Australia’s aged care system is so complex and confusing that it creates barriers to people seeking the support needed to keep older loved ones at home. In My Parents Are Ageing, What The Heck Do I Do?, industry expert Coral Wilkinson explains how the system works in simple language, using real stories to portray how things have gone wrong for people and what can be done to make those situations right.

Coral shows readers how to initiate a sensitive and compassionate discussion with older loved ones, about accepting formal support at home and teaches them about the different aspects of aged care assessment equipping them with the knowledge on how to choose a home care package provider that is right for their needs.

My Parents Are Ageing, What The Heck Do I Do? is also up-to-date with current aged care requirements and also prepares people for the aged care reforms from July 2023.

This book is ideal for users of Australia’s aged care system, older people and their families and carers, as well as for GPs and practice staff, showing them how the system works and how to support their patients to get at home assistance.
